Great option for Hervey Bay. The Allpress coffee was well made. Equal to or better than others in the area. The location can’t be beaten. Right on the beach with a view of Fraser Island and the short pier. I expect previous negative reviews reflect the old version not the renovated version that now seems to be running smoothly. Menu and food looked great but this was a coffee only visit.
Enzo’s reopened in Sept/Oct ‘17 after some serious renovations. It’s now much bigger, offers dinner as well, and they now serve alcohol. The rustic charm of the old boat shack is gone... but the new place is sensational and doesn’t look out of place on Scarness Beach at all. Beautiful amounts of seating right on the beachfront. And incredible use of wood from the old building throughout. With the renovations & reopening, they switched to Allpress coffee, and I reckon it’s substantially better than what it was (can’t remember the beans they used to use). Some reviews from shortly after the reopening seemed to have run into poor service and coffee, but perhaps the new staff were finding their feet - the handful of times I’ve been here over Christmas/NY have been really good. The only minor criticism is that coffee can be a little slow to come out for takeaways. All round, great improvement on coffee from the previous, and the atmosphere has stepped up a notch.
Great location but that’s all Enzo’s has going for it. Don’t bother if you want a good coffee. My order is always a medium flat white with an extra shot. 1st visit the coffee is served in a small paper cup but I was then told that is their medium (Nb. Their large is considered a medium anywhere else on the planet). 2nd visit my order was only half full if you exclude all the froth. I complained so they remade it but forgot the extra shot. Won’t be a 3rd visit.
I rarely drink full strength coffee and should probably be drummed out of this site but I do like a good decaf and the one they make here is great. They also do an awesome hot chocolate. I'll just add I love coffe but too much caffeine does not love me back.😕. The staff are great but seem run off their feet most days, time to look at the work flow perhaps.
